Global Design Project #8 and New Weekly Deals



I had not had the opportunity to participate in the challenges over at the Global Design Project blog until this week. This week's #GDP008 challenge is to CASE the designer, the very talented Kylie Bertucci. We were instructed to be inspired by either the theme, layout, the colors or particular stamp sets. Here is her card:



I ended up using the theme (flowers) and the color combo of Stampin' Up Cherry Cobbler, Tip Top Taupe & Crushed Curry. All products used are from Stampin' Up! including the recycled corrugated cardboard I tore from a Stampin' Up! shipping box. 



I somewhat flattened the corrugated cardboard by running it through my Big Shot between the cutting plates. Then I randomly rubbed Versamark on it and embossed those areas with White Stampin' Emboss powder. I added water & color randomly on the tag before stamping the flower image from Remarkable You on it with Tip Top Taupe and the speckles with Crushed Curry using my most used stamp from the  Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. I then used a barely wet brush to paint the flower with Cherry Cobbler & Crushed Curry. I used the White Signo gel pen to add a few highlights to the flower. I dyed the Whisper White Seam Binding Ribbon with Crushed Curry ink. All in all, I am happy the mixed media look of this card.

I hope you enjoyed the project. Please use the hostess code shown in the top right corner when ordering online, unless your order will total $150 before shipping & tax. At that point, you become your own hostess and get all the rewards! Please keep in mind if you choose "no contact" from the demonstrator, I'm unable to even send you a thank you note for your order...That's right, I'm not even able to see your name. 

As always, let me know if you have any questions about the project or the products used. Thanks for visiting my blog. 

Artfully Yours,

Kim
